This family is one of my favorites, so when Dad contacted me about surprising Mom with a gift certificate for a documentary session for Mother's Day, I could not wait to make this session happen. Mom is a fellow photographer (check her out - she is the amazingly talented woman behind Erin Joyce Photography) and I knew that she "gets" this type of session. When the day arrived, she had just a normal Sunday planned; making breakfast together and heading to the local farmer's market to pick up some veggies and their routine stop at the bakery.
In addition to photographing their family, I also wanted to be sure to capture some video. As a fellow photographer mama, I know that while my children's lives are very well documented in still images, I am horrible at capturing video of my kids (or actually doing anything with those 10 second clips I take on my phone and forget about!). I think it's important to have those family videos to look back on and love that I was able to capture not only the kids and Dad - but the lady who is typically behind the camera, Mom, so that her children can look back on her beauty and see all the joy they fill her life with, and vice versa.
So, now, if you are wondering how I can fit almost 6 hours of photo and video into just under 6 minutes (OK, well I did narrow it down to my favorites) - grab a cup of coffee and take a peek into this very sweet and loving family's Sunday morning.
